    Cheapest way to get 300bhp from my 2lt turbo ?

    My mate is really bugging me with his newish 250 bhp mazda rx8 !!!
    He says he cant wait to see me on the road and leave my 200bhp astra behind as he says my astra is a snail !!!


    I want to secretly get my 03 plate 2 litre turbo upto 300 bhp and burn his arse off, and wipe the smile off his face


    My car is standard except for the K&N induction


    Im willing to spend upto a grand or so of my hard earned cash to wipe the smile off his face. But I dont know where to start with all this modified engine stuff


    What would you guys do with a grand to get me my 300ish bhp ???

    100bhp for a grand?sheesh no changc unless u can find a bigger lump from somewhere and do it all yourself.

    remaps anything from £300 to around 500 i guess, to go normal route to about 280ish(courtenay)-300ish(regal)bhp with zlet u gona need vxr turbo 500 odd, vxr injectors £70,uprated actuator £100 odd, Fmic say from £350 to 600 inc pipework,pre cat decat £100,sports exhaust anything from 200 upto a 600,sports cats 150-500 say plus fitting costs on top.list is endless,i spent nearly £1500 without remap.
    if u want high torque 300bhp maps uprated clutch as well list and cost is endless
    prices are approx

    You can't get 300bhp with a grand if you want your car to work properly.

    Maybe able to get 250bhp for just over a grand though.

    Would need exhaust - cat back £300
    pre cat - £120
    intercooler - £300 from group buy
    Remap - £550.

    total £1270

    spend £300 on a stage1 remap from chippedUK...£300ish on a catback zorst...airbox mods for free...and spend the rest on a 50bhp or 75bhp shot of NOS...thats the only way your gunna potentially see 300bhp for a grand

    They have the 1.3 rotary engine in them. Has his been modified, they are either 189 or 227bhp in standard form. Unless there is special model not listed on parkers.
